CES 2012 | Video: ZTE 7-inch Android ICS tablet
Tablets with Ice Cream Sandwich abound this year at CES and rightly so due to the critical acclaim that the Galaxy Nexus smartphone has received so far.
At Nvidia’s booth, Chinese corporation ZTE unveiled a 7-inch tablet running on none other than the quad-core Tegra 3 chipset. Although less known in the West, ZTE is a popular smartphone manufacturer in the East and has been growing in size ever since. Called the T-98, the ZTE tablet will run ICS with HD video capabilities (up to 14mbps bitrate) and will take advantage of the companion core for HD playback. Battery life is expected to last around 14 hours.
In terms of specs, the T-98 may carry what appears to be an IPS 1280x800 resolution display, microSD reader, 16GB SSD and of course the Tegra 3 processor, possibly clocked higher than 1GHz.
The tablet definitely performs smoothly and responsively even at its initial stages on development, but unfortunately, no official launch window or price was provided.
